Cooperatives and the Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work: Cooperatives and Forced Labour

Domestic work, agriculture, construction, manufacturing and entertainment are among the sectors most affected by compulsory and forced labour. Migrant workers and indigenous people are particularly vulnerable to it. This note looks at how cooperatives and their unions and federations can play a crucial role reaching out to their members and imparting tools and know-how that facilitate their change toward elimination of forced labour practices.
